Hello! My name is Shelly Hill. I am the owner and founder of Wildfire & Sage. It all started with a spark in 2012 when while working in Hawaii and helping people treat minor ailments with herbs and food from the land that I uncovered a passion and fascination for the work. Over the course of 6 years practicing yoga and studying ayurveda had become a big part of my life and lad a foundation in my journey.
Mother Nature provides exactly what we need to assist in healing if we know where to look and how to use it. From this belief, I began to explore my ancestral roots and becoming curious as to what treatments my family had used led me back home to Tennessee to study Appalachian folk medicine. The education I received there allowed me to more deeply understand what was in my home region.
In 2017, I moved to Alaska and have thoroughly enjoyed learning about the new plants in the region and observing how mother nature provides what we need throughout different environments.
Wildfire & Sage was born out of love for the land and all the magic it provides for us. We create herbal products from tea to skin care with the intent to nourish and replenish the body, both inside and out. Most of our products consists of five or less ingredients for simplicity and include at least one and usually more ingredients found in southeast Alaska.
